Happy (late) Valentine’s Day!

Love it … any day of the year!

Oh my, so scandalous!

Seems to be a lot of lakes and rivers. Still waters run deep.

So scandalous!

So fun, thanks for sharing!

Thanks, milkandtoast! Just last night I happened to be reading The Annotated Alice by Martin Gardner, which includes a lengthy note about Lewis Carroll’s “The Mouse’s Tale,” which is actually in the shape of a mouse’s tail. Here’s part of the note, which provides some good references on the subject.


Barbara- The last book mentioned “Whimsey Anthology” can be found on google books… I actually bookmarked it some time last year! What are the odds?

Wow, thanks, milkandtoast! I was going to Google some of those books, too. It’s great that A Whimsy Anthology is there. It’s got some wonderful examples!
